Home to many multinational companies like Tesla, Ford, Skype and Hewlett-Packard, Palo Alto reserves its status as one of the most developed cities in the United States. Moreover, it is also ranked in the top five very expensive cities with one of the greatest numbers of literate citizens in the country.
A pioneer in the field of higher education, Stanford University also traces its roots in Palo Alto. The odds are high that you will be visiting this city for a tour/work at the University, yet many other attractions have the potential of sliding into your sightseeing checklist. Certainly, you would not prefer to miss out on all that this city has to offer.
Some of the major ones include the Cantor Arts Center, the Stanford Dish, Hoover Tower, Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve and the Computer History Museum.
We advise you to refer to the attached list of Airbnbs in Palo Alto to avoid the efforts of researching for a good accommodation in the city.
